Today is day one of the Directory Experts Conference in Chicago. So far the conference has been very good – but that was as expected. I had one session today right before lunch, “A Directory Services Geek’s View on Active Directory Recovery in Windows Server 2008″. Went quite well, however the power-plug on stage was switched off so my machine decided to go into sleep-mode during the presentation. For some reason this session is attracting Laptop-issues, during the Launch in Frankfurt the virtual machine decided to “unexpectedly shutdown”. Things happen, that’s part of the fun, isn’t it?
